Former Springbok wing Aphiwe Dyantyi will appeal his four-year doping ban.
The Lions and Springbok wing tested positive in July 2019 for anabolic steroids methanedienone, methyltestosterone and LGD-4033.
On 13 December, the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport (Saids) suspended the 26-year-old for a period of four years according to regulation 21 of World Rugby’s rules. He will not be allowed to play rugby until 12 August 2023.
However, Dyantyi has decided to appeal the ban.
Saids will now liaise with various parties, including the player’s legal team, to set up a date for the appeal.
